The Power of PixelSense

Samsung's 40-inch SUR40 for Microsoft Surface tablet on pre-order...


by Michael



Samsung's SUR40 for Microsoft Surface:  Table, tablet, or maybe both?
Well, it surely isn't very mobile, but it is on pre-order in 23 countries, including the U.S.
The 40-inch touchscreen device, as the name implies, runs Microsoft's Surface software, which is most often found in Surface tables inside Microsoft Stores. The New York Times has done some experimenting with an older version of Microsoft's Surface technology too.
Microsoft and Samsung also showed off the SUR40, which has a 4-inch-thick display, at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and now you can buy one too -- if you've got the cash.
So, how much will it cost and when will it ship?
Obviously the SUR40 isn't meant to compete with Apple's iPad on price or size.
Jason Redmond, a Samsung spokesman, clarified the pricing and shipping details for the Technology blog in an email, saying:  Pricing is $8,400 USD for just the display unit and $9,049 with the legs as shown in the photo. It is sold without the legs for customers who are building a tabletop or display furniture around the SUR40. We will start shipping to customers in early January, not long after CES.
I know these are out of reach for us 99%.......but I just get excited about whats coming...and this is something we will all have in the not too distant future.
Of course I'll get one as soon as they ship.....I always have to be first. But as many of you may know...this isn't new....this touch and move stuff......they have just made it way better.....
btw...The Rosie show has turned out to be rather good.

BAMM Back at you Gobble Gobble

I hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving! I will try to pop in tomorrow.

I know I have not been around but sadly I have had some very traumatic and trying times even in the last few weeks. Really I am so tired of this. Back to seeing my therapist and Shrink but I have decided that I am going to fight back and not let others drag me down. So baby steps will be taken and I hope to be my old self or maybe a new improved self soon.

Love ya!

PS won't be getting the tablet table anytime in the future. Can you imagine what I would have to clean off of that bitch with the gang in my house?

Afternoon Michael and Lynn D!

I don't even own a cell phone so I'm sure this will not be in my house. But you enjoy yours Michael. I hope Belle doesn't have any accidents on it. (he he he )

Hi Lynn and Shirley...

I'm kidding about getting one of those things! Just saying...remember how big and expensive the first computers were? Or PC's will be touch and move eventually....small and reasonably priced...

Shirley...Belle doesn't have accidents...that would be me... :/

Just_Lin said...

Gobble Thanks for bringing lunch and congrats on getting here first today.

Just_Lin said...

LynnD I'm really sorry you are going through trying times. Big (((HUGS))) to you. I hope you have a really nice Thanksgiving. It's a good time to take a deep breath and focus on all the blessings in our lives.

Just_Lin said...

Shirley I resisted getting a cell phone for the longest time. Many people now only have cell phones and have done away with their land line phones. I still have both, though.

Gobble-Gobble said...

Well... Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I have a package of turkey bologna...

I'll just be here...at the house...alone...like a dog...in the dark...

Just_Lin said...

Michael Do you feel okay? You have a rather flat affectation and are looking just a little greasy.

Thanks for the blog today. I don't want one of those.

I gave up my iphone a couple of months ago in an effort to rid myself of things that were unnecessarily stressful.

I have had a cell phone since the early 90's....and I didn't think I could do without it...

its been kinda nice...

Just_Lin said...

I'm cooking a turkey dinner today since my grandkids will be going back to their mother's house tonight. My brother will be cooking a turkey for himself for the first time tomorrow. I expect calls. He already called me about it last night. At least I'll be available to help him since my Thanksgiving Day will be easy, just heating up leftovers.

Our early Thanksgiving dinner was great and now I'm exhausted.

Tina~in_ut said...

sooooo....do you think it's bad to take today off (w/o pay)....wake up in the late morning with a headache....then go back to sleep...and not git up til 8pm?~ Somehow....I don't~ :)~

Going to In-n-Out with the oldest....he invited me...so I'd pay~ He volunteered to drive! What a guy~

btw...Michael...can't wait til u buy me one of these~

Just_Lin said...

Tina Did you get a Double Double? Are you cooking Thanksgiving dinner?

Tina~in_ut said...

J/L~ #3 w/ketchup only~ I like meat..but not that much meat~ No...I'm not cooking...wait....sorta....I'm going to make an apple pie now...then make some whipped cream....and tomorrow I'll make the potatoes and veggies....hubby makes the turkey~ I'm lucky that way~

LynnD~ Glad to see you~ Keep fighting....don't let "it" win~

Shirley~ lmbo@hope belle doesn't have an accident on it!!~

Just_Lin said...

Tina Yes, you are lucky that way. My husband liked to cook so I was lucky that way, too. I always did Thanksgiving dinner, though, after the first time that he cooked it and he put apples or something in the stuffing. I'm a traditionalist. I just want cornbread stuffing, no fancy stuff.

Just_Lin said...

I'm sure glad that we're owls and not turkeys.
